No doubt Zappa was a musical genius; he was also an inspiration to Trey, as noted in many interviews with Trey.

I was simply pointing out that Trey composes complicated pieces of music and it's more similar to Zappa than to the Grateful Dead.

No one, and I mean NO ONE, is, or was, in Zappa's realm. He created his own.

That said, if you think Trey sucks you need to get your head examined and take off your biased goggles. Personal opinion of his music doesn't change the fact that he is a technically proficient guitar player and has composed some interesting, unique, and complicated pieces of music. Anyone with any knowledge of music and some degree of objectivity would likely agree with that.

i will not deny that i need my head examined, but that doesnt change my opinion of the spoiled rich kid that takes grateful dead jams and adds words to them and then calls them his own.

And the words he adds.....jeesh. Hunter may have produced some questionable lyrical choices here and there, but Trey...he's in a class by himself. Why do so many jam bands feel the need to write lyrics? Afterall, we don't call them "word bands". Again, this is all my personal opinion.

Haha..Phish takes Grateful Dead jams and adds lyrics!? Their jams and compositions aren't even remotely similar.
